Fully updated compendium of revolt and resistance

Throughout the ages and across every continent, people have struggled against those in power and raised their voices in protest-rallying others around them or, sometimes, inspiring uprisings many years later. This anthology, global in scope, presents voices of dissent from every era of human history: speeches and pamphlets, poems and songs, plays and manifestos. Every age has its iconoclasts, and yet the greatest among them build on the words and actions of their forerunners. The Verso Book of Dissent should be in the arsenal of every rebel who understands that words and ideas are the ultimate weapons.

Reviews

  • The Verso Book of Dissent shows the many ways in which the constant struggle to create a better world has broken through the walls of apathy and acquiescence.

    Noam Chomsky
  • A delightful anthology to dip into if you are or have ever been disgruntled with the status quo … for radicals everywhere.

    Nick LezardGuardian
  • A very right-on compendium of opposition to authority.
